    Default Bee Weaver queens

    With the claims made by these guys - "you can throw away those expensive mite treatments", just wondered if any commercial guys have tried them, and how they went?

    You better keep your mite treatments, and save your money.

    householder, does that apply to all breeds, or just the weaver queens?

    I agree with Ron. We tried them for a few years and they got the PMS just like all the rest.

    The company tried them for a few years back in the days. Don't know if they have changed the way they do business, or not. Really bad Queens. One year we had a 200+ lot of Buckfast queen. 94% drone layers. We would have been better off letting them raise there own queens and only produce a super or two, instead of a queen bill with no production.

    OK 94% drone layers would probably stop me using a supplier again!

    They only claim to have stopped using chemicals since 2001. Did these other posts relate to before or after that?
